Review: Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ Turns The Muny Into Underwater Kingdom
June 23, 2017
"When you think of the animated film, one of the first things that comes to mind might be all of the colorful characters. So if you want to bring them to life, you need great costumes. And that would be an understatement for this production. Robin McGee’s fantastic designs transform the 2D world we’ve grown up with into a marvelous real-world version that is sure to delight. The audience was roaring with applause as their favorite characters appeared on-stage. From the colorful mermaids to the jaw-dropping Ursula (whose giant tentacles take four actors to control), the costumes are breathtaking. Sebastian’s shiny red suit and tiny top hat, as well as all of the background fish, were among my favorites. The production even manages to effectively turn water into a character, played by several members of the ensemble."
